Doc charged with female feticide commits suicide

May 18, 2009

Today, a doctor charged with a case of female feticide in the Bhatinda district of Punjab committed suicide at the District Courts complex. More about this here (and here ) …

(Btw, the report in two of the news sources, Times of India and DNA, start with  “a woman doctor charged with …”. What’s the motive in drawing attention to the doctor’s gender? If it were a male doctor, would the media report it as ” a male doctor charged with ….” ?)
